Maximum yield stress in reinforced concrete frames

  • D. S. Mackenzie D.S. Mackenzie & Co., Auckland, New Zealand


In the past steelmakers have tried to ensure that the yield stress of their reinforcing bars has always been above the specified minimum.

It now appears that for earthquake moment resisting frames it should always be below some known maximum stress. Such a stress could with justification be included in the Standard Specification for the reinforcing concerned.
